Do what Ben does: teach him on the street Razz

I'd just go to a giant parking lot and get cracking

Teach him on the street...means, let him ride his bike in the court with slalom cones to get the idea of what to look for. As for going to a giant parking lot, there's no way of communicating to the kart to let him/her know that there's a car coming or the police from taking the kart away. my.02

just lot's of K1 speed

I took him to K1 Speed last weekend and he was out there with 7 other kids. He was a little tentative at first but by the end of the session he was going about as fast as the kart would go. He is learning that there is a right way and a not so right way to go through a corner because he was sliding out and even spun out once. I explained afterwards that the slow down sign they were giving him didn't mean to slow down on the straights, just in the corners. He asked me last night when we could go again. Very Happy

Good news. We need more younger auto crossers.

You can try to make a street car into an autocrosser or you can do a lot less work to make a race car into a great autocrosser.

I bought a junior kart on Saturday. I have to put it together and get it set up, get him some safety gear and we'll be ready. Hopefully I can get him out for the remaining slush dates. Very Happy

Not sure who is more excited...he or I Smug

Thanks! Here he is at his first event, Slush 4. He can't wait until the season opener.
